Apple Pie

Apple-pie-17You do not know what to do with so many apples? It is clear, an apple pie! They are so beautiful and always look good. I love pies in general, but especially the apple pie. The smell of cinnamon, apple and freshly baked cookies that will stay at home after baking an apple pie will automatically become your favourite aroma.

Apple-pie-2And we continue with the burst of autumnal recipes, and moreover, without having it planned seems a homage to the American recipes. It might be because, as they are now in all the media for the elections, I have somehow my brain washed for posting only American recipes

Apple-pie-3Well, enough of nonsense, this is a cooking blog not politics. Pies in general, are kind of an addiction. Actually, for me they are also something like a therapy. I could spend days making tarts, like on a production chain, one after another. And play with the decoration, stretch the mass … it’s like being a girl again and playing with Plasticine, I find it soooo relaxing.

Apple-pie-18They are also beautiful, I am far from being a pie expert, but if you search a bit on the internet you will find things so pretty!! They are also a kind of sweet that has something like very endearing, as very homemade and loving. And there are people afraid of them, especially to the pie crust preparation, but I can tell you, you do not have to. It is very very easy and for the pie crust the only trick is using cold ingredients and mix well, nothing more!

Apple-pie-19I suggest that you try with this one, if you are afraid of such fancy decoration you can cover it with plan crust like the classic style and you are done. If you want to do something like what I have done, you can look for tutorials on the internet. The braid I think everyone knows how to do it and cross straps too. The leaves can be cut with a knife and make the marks of the stems. To make the roses you can see how they are made in this video of thekitchenmccab blog. And the edge is simply made with a fork, nothing out of the other world, right?

Serves: 12-14
Cooking Time: 45 min. Total: 1h 45 min.


  • 250 g cold butter cut into cubes
  • 500 g flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50 g of icing sugar
  • 7 Tbsp cold water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 9 apples peeled and without seeds
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 50 g butter
  • 3 Tbsp of cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice



Mix the butter with the dry ingredients, you can use a kneader or do it with your hands. Add the water and egg yolk and knead until having a homogeneous mass. Divide the dough into two balls of equal size and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.


Meanwhile you can prepare the filling, cut the apples into large pieces and mix with the sugar, cinnamon and pulp of the vanilla pod. In a glass dilute the cornstarch with the lemon juice. Put in a large skillet to melt the butter, when it starts to sizzle add the apples and cook until they brown a little. Add the Maizena and cook the mixture for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool.


Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Take the crust balls out of the refrigerator and spread them with a rolling pin until they have circles large enough to cover the mold and which extend about 5 cm around the edges. Grease the mold with butter and flour and cover with one of the circles of dough. The other one is reserved to cover the cake.


Fill the cake with chickpeas and bake for about 15 minutes so the dough becomes crispy. Remove from the oven, empty the chickpeas and fill the cake with the apples. Cover the cake with the decoration that you like using the rest of the dough. Bake for about 45 minutes or until golden.

Sweet dreams,
